The mind is a powerful thing, right? The subjects of Western Scene’s “testing” in the video for the band’s single “Listening” take it to another place. The song is the first single by lab-coasted conspirators Tom Pritchard and Jason Burkhart, whose explorations in electro-tinted indie-rock began last year. The idea for the video originated with their producer, Hugo Nicolson (Radiohead, Primal Scream). The video’s producer, Henrietta Tiefenthaler, director Katharine O’Brien and DP Alex Scott took it from there. The single will be available soon as a 7-inch.
||| Live: Western Scene premieres the video and plays a short set tonight at the Spare Room at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Western Scene plays a full-band show on Saturday afternoon as part of the free Year of the Snake Lunar New Year Festival in Chinatown. Info, set times here.
